Run scripts from Github on the fly

Project description

Run scripts from GitHub, npx-style.


ghx rshk/ghx-example

In its most basic form, it will make a shallow copy of the specified GitHub repository and run a script from it.

By default, it will look for an executable named bin/run inside the repo folder.

Run a different script:

ghx rshk/ghx-example/bin/two

Or from a different branch:

ghx -b foobar rshk/ghx-example


You need a Python 3 interpreter and pip installed.

pip install ghx

Or install in the user home directory (usually ~/.local):

pip install --user ghx

(Make sure you have ~/.local/bin in your PATH)
